REASONS WHY HE SHOULD GO…First hosts to go out before the knockout stagesThere is no getting away from this fact. Granted England were in the toughest World Cup Pool in history but they had home advantage in the familiar tub-thumping environs of Twickenham – backed up with lofty soundbites about making Twickenham a fortress. Consecutive losses to Wales and Australia put paid to those pipe-dreams and they left HQ with boos, not cheers, ringing in their ears, after a 33-13 humbling by Australia. The World Cup party has had to go on without them and they have no one else to blame. They were simply found wanting on the world’s biggest stage, and that is something Lancaster has said he may never recover from.Horror show: England players look dejected as their loss to Australia sinks inIncreasingly muddled midfield selectionLancaster started out with a bloated 51-man squad, and that was finally whittled down to 31, including the untested Bath backrow Sam Burgess pegged as a centre but missing Northampton’s Luther Burrell, the incumbent in England’s midfield for a good chunk of Lancaster’s tenure. The backline had prospered during the Six Nations, as they ran in 18 tries, with George Ford and Jonathan Joseph underpinned their new joie de vivre. After a jolting loss against France in Paris, and a deemed lack of control against Fiji, Lancaster panicked and Ford was demoted to the bench behind Farrell, leading to a change in gameplan. With fate depriving England of Joseph before the Wales game, a robust yet creatively limited 10, 12, 13 combination of Owen Farrell, Burgess and Brad Barritt saw cut off the supply line to England’s best functioning unit, the back three, thus nullifying their potency. Henry Slade, a creator with sublime gifts, was left without a minute’s game time.Set-piece regressionOne of the most alarming issues for England was their set-piece malfunction. In the warm-ups, their lineout stopped working with Tom Youngs’ darts not hitting their targets, leading to his Leicester partner Geoff Parling being recalled – which gave away some ballast in the second-row. At the same time, England’s scrum, once so dominant, started struggling as a unit.Smashed: England’s set-piece was dismantled by a Wallaby pack that had been pilloried in recent yearsTwice against France they came off second best, and while they had the nudge against Wales, it completely collapsed against Australia as they gave away five scrum penalties, leading to Joe Marler being hooked after 49 minutes. The final humiliation was the Wallabies requesting a scrum after being given a penalty, such was their dominance on England’s home patch.Inflexibility over playersAfter 2011, England built a culture which focused on self-discipline, no egos and a team-first ethos. While their moral compass was recalibrated, this was too rigidly enforced. As Lancaster would know, not all schoolchildren are the same, and rugby is no different. Dylan Hartley was banned for the Fiji game but could have been available but under Lancaster’s strict moral code he was not accommodated. How England missed his leadership, scrummaging ability and ‘dog’. Danny Cipriani was another not to make the squad with the suspicion his individualistic personality counted against him, while Nick Easter – another with his own mind – only made it into the squad after injuriesTactical naivity Following England’s exit from the World Cup, should Stuart Lancaster remain as head coach? By Owain Jones & Sarah MockfordEngland‘s defeat by Australia on Saturday condemned them to an early exit from their own World Cup. It’s the first time England have failed to make the knockout stages. So what now for head coach Stuart Lancaster? Here Rugby World presents the arguments for why he should stay and why he should go – and gives you the chance to vote in our poll…REASONS WHY HE SHOULD STAY…Learning lessonsAs Wales coach Warren Gatland said following England’s exit, you learn more from losses than you do from successes. It’s a point that has been proven many times over the years.Sir Clive Woodward got a second chance after England were knocked out of the 1999 quarter-finals and went on to lift the trophy four years later with many of the same players. A more fitting example is Graham Henry. He, like Lancaster, had four years in the New Zealand job before RWC 2007 but the All Blacks suffered an embarrassing defeat by France to exit at the quarter-final stage for the first time. The NZRU kept faith in Henry and in 2011 he ended the country’s 24-year wait to lift the Webb Ellis Cup for a second time.Over and out: New Zealand were beaten by France in the 2007 quarter-final. Photo: Getty ImagesIt’s a painful time for Lancaster and England right now, but he’s long said that this group of players will hit their peak in 2019 and he could use the hurt and experience of this World Cup to be better prepared for the one in Japan.Knowledge baseNo one in English rugby knows more about up-and-coming players than Lancaster. He’s been involved in the RFU set-up since 2008, his primary responsibility before taking the No 1 job to develop young players, and his brain is bursting with knowledge about the next generation – and even the generation after that!He has tables showing lists of players in every position, depth charts if you will, and has proven that he can bring the best out of young players. If the RFU let him go, they would be losing a valuable resource. Kevin Bowring, the RFU’s long-term Head of Elite Coach Development is retiring, so there could be a role that would bring the best out of Lancaster.Young gun: Anthony Watson scores against Australia at Twickenham. Photo: Getty ImagesCulture clubThe last few months, and particularly the last three weeks, have overshadowed the sterling work Lancaster has done since taking the reins in 2012. When he was appointed interim coach morale was at an all-time low, as was public opinion of the team, following England’s dismal showing on and off the field at RWC 2011.Lancaster played a leading role in rebuilding England’s relationship with the fans and the media after that tournament. He took a tough stance on off-field ill-discipline from the start and wasn’t afraid to drop players from the squad for such misdemeanours, making it abundantly clear what high standards he expected. He worked on instilling a club culture in the national team and restoring pride in wearing the jersey.After many a club-versus-country row, he also helped build a positive relationship with Premiership Rugby, his stance on not picking overseas-based players no doubt playing a key role. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Early exit: Stuart Lancaster trudges off the pitch after England’s loss to Australia. Photo: Getty Images Peerless: David Pocock broke English hearts with a world-class display to which England had no answerEngland known they would face the twin threat of Wales and Australia for nigh on three years. That the two sides possess four of the best opensides in the World, in Michael Hooper, David Pocock, Sam Warburton and Justin Tipuric was also heavily documented. England stubbornness not to come up with a tactical plan to counter this hurt them, particularly against Australia, where Pocock and Hooper won five turnovers, mostly when England were in strong attacking positions. Chris Robshaw has and never will share the same rarefied company as a breakdown specialist – he’s a fine player, it was simply asking too much. England’s other breakdown operators, Dan Cole and Joe Launchbury were also unable stop ‘Pooper’.

Maple and Lowe Step Down at Corn and Soy Checkoffs Previous articleNew Year, Old IssuesNext articleMorning Outlook Andy Eubank By Andy Eubank – Dec 28, 2015 SHARE Corn and soy leadership changesThere is new leadership heading into the New Year at Indiana’s corn and soybean checkoff organizations. Joe Steinkamp from Evansville is the new president of the Indiana Soybean Alliance and David Gottbrath of Pekin in Washington County assumes the president’s role for the corn checkoff, the Indiana Corn Marketing Council.HAT caught up with the outgoing presidents just before Christmas and Denny Maple of ICMC had a message for the state’s corn growers.“We wish them a very, very merry Christmas and a happy New Year and hope you had a successful harvest this year. We look forward to next year always being better. We’re optimists and certainly there were areas in the state that were troubled with crop issues this year and we’re hoping for the best next year.”David Lowe from east-central Indiana is stepping down at Indiana soybean.“To all those farmers on my side of the state who were not quite as fortunate, there is next year and we’re glad for that and the activities of the Indiana Soybean Alliance will continue to strive to do the very best to bring programs that will help you make decisions in times like we had recently on the cropping reports and programs and cash rents and those kinds of things. Family is king this time of year, not corn, and the opportunity to share with our families no matter what the circumstances are, is vitally important.”Lowe said ISA is looking forward to continued work on high oleic soybeans and the future of the automated plant phenotyping research and education facility now under construction at the Purdue University Agronomy Center for Research and Education.“Indiana corn and soybean chose to invest in that, probably not for Denny or my generation, but for future generations. We know it’s a great opportunity for us to share but we think there is great opportunity for students and to keep some of these students local and working for us and for the future of agriculture here in Indiana.” Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Maple and Lowe Step Down at Corn and Soy Checkoffs Facebook Twitter

Whatever the report says, the Iranian regime should know that sooner or later it will have to answer for all its arbitrary arrests of journalists,” he warned, calling for the release of 9 other jailed journalists.Motallebi was arrested on 20 April after he answered a summons the previous day from the Adareh Amaken “morality” branch of the Teheran police which is considered close to the intelligence services. He was interrogated for several hours.After Hayat-é-No was shut down in January, he revived the Rooznegar.com website on which he had defended one of the paper’s journalists, Alireza Eshragi, who was arrested on 11 January, and other imprisoned journalists. This angered the country’s hardline judiciary but also some reformers, who he criticised for remaining silent about the arrests. He was accused of undermining national security through “cultural activity” and had been summoned several times in the past four months by legal officials and Adareh Amaken.In the last few days, Court 1410, known as the country’s press court, has summoned journalists Masomeh Alinejad, of the daily Hambastegi, Mohamad Naimipur, editor of the daily Yasnoo, Reza Monsaref, editor of the fortnightly Avaimako, Mohammed Mirdamadi, managing editor of the reformist daily Nowrooz, Mohsen Sazgara, editor of a website and publisher of the banned daily Golestan-é-Iran, and the editor of the daily paper Tosseh.

Gavin Newsom’s COVID-19 restrictions on in-person worship to the U.S. Supreme Court, launched a new podcast today, Feb. 3, called “Truth Talks with Pastor Che,” in partnership with Charisma Media.“Truth Talks with Pastor Ché” is recorded live from Sunday morning sermons at Harvest Rock Church and provides listeners with biblical insights and personal stories, according to a report appearing on digitaljournal.com.The podcast can be heard on YouTube, Spotify, Google and Spotify.Last year, Ahn gained national notoriety when, after being threatened by Pasadena officials with the possibility of fines and possible arrest for holding in-person worship services, he and his attorney Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel sued Newsom to allow congregants to gather inside the church in Ambassador Auditorium in West Pasadena.The case was twice rejected by a U.S. District Court judge, and it was rejected twice by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Today, it has reached the Supreme Court for a second time.The first time, the High Court remanded the case back to the original district court to reconsider its merits, which it did, and came to the same prior judgment. This time, Supreme Court Associate Justice Elena Kagan has ordered Newsom to respond to the church’s latest request for a preliminary injunction to allow Harvest Rock Church members to worship indoors and in person.Ahn has authored numerous books, including “Say Goodbye to Powerless Christianity,” “How to Pray for Healing,” “The Grace of Giving,” “God Wants to Bless You!” and “Modern-Day Apostles.”Along with his wife, Pastor Sue Ahn, he formed Harvest Rock Church more than 20 years ago.

We fully respect all the opinions and suggestion made to us. The structural part of it .e.g. composition- lies with the M.H.A. but for its functional part we are completely autonomous and willing to respect the suggestions,” the Committee said. The statement comes in the backdrop of a letter addressed to the Committee by various luminaries including former Judges of the Supreme Court and the High Courts, Advocates and former Bureaucrats, expressing concern over the Committee’s composition and transparency in functioning. ‘Lacks Diversity’: Former SC/HC Judges, Lawyers Express Concern On Composition And Working Of Central Committee For Reforms In Criminal Law The letter had urged the Committee to hold “meaningful public engagement” and to provide “additional mechanisms” for inputs by creating mechanisms on the website, through email/ post. Responding to the same the Committee said, “Registrations for the consultations are open to everyone irrespective of ideologies; views; preferences; sexual orientation; disabilities; race; ethnicity; class; caste; sex; gender; religion; place of residence; or, place of birth and as such, everyone is free to share their views, opinions, suggestions, recommendations, knowledge and experience on the questions of law. Towards this end, we have received an encouraging response in terms of registrations by several hundred professionals, stakeholders and functionaries of our Criminal Justice System.” So far as additional mechanism is concerned, the Committee has developed a web based platform for consultations with domain experts and professionals, including and the people at large having interests in these areas. Inter alia, the Committee has assured that it will make the questionnaire available in various regional languages and has clarified that the word limit (200 words) for responding to the questions, is merely a guideline. “The participants are free to exceed the word limit of 200 words as the same is not a hard rule but merely a guideline urging participants to exercise self-restraint for the sake of brevity,” it said. However, it has expressed variance on the suggestion to extend the deadline given to the public to respond to the consultation process. “The shorter time notice of response is due to the fact that the assignment has to be completed within a duration of six months,” it added. The Committee has expressed the willingness to engage with all the stakeholders in the criminal justice administration, working in any capacity, to gain inputs on the reforms in the criminal laws. “We intend to facilitate this engagement by way of our consultations and forthcoming discussions groups or the written submission that can be made to us through email at [email protected] We would be keen to have meetings with all such persons/organisations and professionals to share more about our work,” the notice states. The five-member Committee was constituted by the Union Ministry of Home Affairs vide Notification 1-2-19 Judicial Cell (Part I) dated 4-5-2020, to recommend criminal reforms in India. At present, it is operating as a team of nearly 30 individuals including Consultants, Researchers and Interns.
